“Lovely, airy underground café” in the large, rambling and atmospheric crypt of St Martin-in-the-Fields that’s “very useful for a quick lunch” by Trafalgar Square. There’s always “something for everyone”, including “good and varied soups” – and “it’s for a good cause”.

“Plain but well-cooked food at a reasonable price”“in the beautiful crypt” of St Martin-in-the-Fields – makes this self-service café a useful option for a snack “in the midst of tourist-land”. It’s right on Trafalgar Square, so “ideal for the National Gallery”“and the cakes are delicious”.

“Huge” crypt, beneath St Martin-in-the-Fields and right on Trafalgar Square. To some its self-service cafeteria style is too “soulless”, but fans adore the setting and that you can get “tasty snacks at really good prices” so centrally.
